Cub Tracks Closes A Chapter

Whether you view the 2014 Cubs as a team that made progress or through the "Ricky Bobby Lens," it's time to put a wrap on the season. The mainstream writers are doing their part. And, at the same time, I'm capping a chapter for Cub Tracks, too.

Looking for even more high fives in 2015.

I've been thinking for a couple days what to put here, rolling back and forth from succinct to painfully wordy. Hopefully, I'll land somewhere in the middle.

I've brought you link after link in Cub Tracks since it debuted on November 20, 2012 (holy crap - I've done this for almost two years?!?!). But this will be my last edition, at least as the regular author. Starting Thursday, Russ La Croix will take over this thrice-weekly column. If you've ever passed through one of his On the Horizon or Heroes and Goats articles, you already know he'll do a mighty fine job in this space.

I'll still be a BCB contributor, in a space to be determined. And I'll still appear in the comments, likely in my, ahem, vocal manner. But at this point in time, I need to prioritize some other things ahead of having a deadline and responsibility three times a week here at BCB.

But I want to very publicly thank Al for the opportunity to write in this space. Cub Tracks was my idea and it was my pleasure to bring you all these links for so long. I hope you've enjoyed it and will continue to visit and support Russ, particularly during the offseason.

Enough with the intro - on to the links.
